Independent Era has arrived!

No Comments

Well done Glen and Marketa, a huge achievement for Independent Acts!!

The era is upon us now to make the change.

*If we merge together As a collective of Indie Musicians and Bands there are no barriers we can not cross!!

We feel that if musicians, as a collective, got together and worked with each other as opposed to against , they could achieve so much.

Our thought’s are to change or not so much change, but alter the mindsets of musicians into actually working with each other and supporting each other as opposed to feeling inferior or at a battle against each other. e.g: who is better than who…..and that crap…no no no………that is not the way to go or to think!!  It is our attempt to restructure the music scene in Ireland by creating a balance and mutual respect among musicians and bands, not fighting amongst each other to get better or higher.

Granted we are all climbing uphill to get higher up the ladder to success, but if there was someone in-front of you and behind you to catch your fall or watch your step, wouldn’t it be more fun and a better environment and climb!!

If you take a look at the early 60’s and 70’s, massive music collectives and bands toured extensively together and helped each other and created a whole bloody genre of music, and most importantly they did it together and all reaped the benefits. (Dylan, Jerry Lee Lewis, Joan Baez, The Band, Neil Young, Joni Mitchel etc etc

We feel that there is so much talent in the country today, that if they all put their heads together and toured helping each other out and building a major buzz about themselves and the music, that we could shift the collective mindsets of the general public to wanting to hear indie music on sound waves on the radio instead of what they are spoon-fed by the majors and those in power.

There is allot of work to be done still, but hey when there is a will there is a way.

Please feel free to leave any comments or thoughts here, all are welcome.!
